The all-new Renault KOLEOS.

When it launched back in 2007, the KOLEOS was Renault’s first foray into the SUV market, comfortably combining the family car with the off-roader. After a couple of facelifts, and a short break from the UK market, the KOLEOS is back with its second-generation model and it’s bigger and better than ever before.

Powerful design

This large SUV looks sporty, robust and powerful. Stylish 19-inch alloy wheels enhance its commanding appearance and the C-shaped front light cluster completes the striking front end.

Inside, the cabin is designed to create a sense of wellbeing and premium materials provide the car with a reassuringly luxurious feel. This roomy interior has multiple storage areas and sliding armrests, creating enough space for every journey.

Great equipment as standard

Trim starts with 18-inch alloy wheels, dual zone climate control, leather upholstery, automatic lights and wipers and 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android and Apple connectivity. If you choose to upgrade you have the option of heated seats, heated steering wheel, electric tailgate and full LED headlights.


The KOLEOS is designed to adapt to your needs. The boot offers 1706 litres of storage and one-touch folding seats mean the car can easily be adapted to a number of configurations, giving you the space you need, when you need it.

Whether you want to take the car on the road or adventure off the beaten track, the KOLEOS can handle any surface with a switch to four-wheel drive. The latest driving technology means that you’ll get the perfect amount of grip and torque to help you traverse even the most challenging terrain.

Providing a safer drive

The latest integrated driver assist systems ensure you’ll enjoy a safer drive, every time. Active Emergency braking helps reduce stopping distances and collision risks by alerting the driver and prepping the brakes. The blind spot warning system alerts you to any objects in your peripheral vision, ensuring you maintain full awareness of your surroundings. Hill start assist means that you’ll never have any problems starting your car on a steep incline again. And with 5 stars in Euro NCAP safety tests, you can drive with added peace of mind.

The latest in driving technology

The multimedia, navigation and driver assist systems can all be controlled with the touch of a button using the 8.7-inch R-LINK 2 touchscreen. Getting into the tightest spaces won’t be a problem with a hands-free parking system that measures the perfect angle to enter and exit a space, leaving the driver in full control of speed and braking.

Efficient performance

Three powertrains will be available at launch, based on two diesel engines. Choose from a 1.6-litre engine offering 128bhp with six-speed manual transmission and front wheel drive, or a 175bhp 2.0-litre engine four-wheel drive with either a six-speed manual or X-Tronic CVT automatic transmission.
